I love this park. Growing up seconds away from the park this is the root of my love and appreciation for nature. I know most the trails by heart, beautiful place with tons of areas to explore. There are flat trails and hilly trials with a variety of terrain. The butterfly garden and blinds are a nice addition for those who like to birdwatch and such. There are several parking lots so one can hike a different trails often.

I enjoyed this park as it was my first time there, but felt it had 2 flaws. Some of the hike (particularly the beginning and the end) are somewhat close to roads with heavier traffic, so the noise was a little much at times and took away from the solitude and peacefulness that I enjoy, but I will say that it didn't last terribly long and the middle of the hike was well worth it and enjoyable! The only other flaw is there are some side trails that are not marked nor on the map and can lead to confusion, like I had. Luckily I was using Map My Walk on my phone and was able to backtrack back to where I needed. Overall, I would hike this park again as I did 10.74 miles pretty easily. Most of the trails are flat and even, there isn't to much climbing and trails are relatively smooth with very few obstacles to climb over such as rocks or things like that.

Easy to get to and easy to hike, Jacobsburg park offers a variety of scenery for all sorts of leisurely hikers. Dogs are an every day sight on these trails. There are also trails accessible to horses. There are many opportunities to walk down into the creek and wade through it. Unexpected pieces of the past are here to be discovered, including a old chimneys, abandoned cards, and stone walls dating back to the revolutionary war. This place is a great way to start or end your day and it's close enough to town that you don't have to set aside a whole day just for getting there.
